Off Topic / Re: Hacker News
It wasn't listed with them, I just asked if they could order it and today I got a message that I can get it at my local library 100 m from my house. Great service here :-)

I have asked for four books this year and all of them arrived within a couple of weeks, one was some obscure manga comic they only had books 2-8, missing the first one. That one took a bit longer to get here.

Our library is Umeå Stadsbibliotek in Sweden.
And almost 11 years old code, what a nice world we live in when your stuff isn't obsolete within two months! :-)

There is a free version but it doesn't have much sounds or instruments, this you buy separately if you want it. It's only free for non-commercial usage, if you want to make money on it you have to buy the commercial license for the sounds you use.

Humblebundle is selling a cheap version of the EDM edition with some soundbanks right now.

I wouldn't put too much thought on DRM, it's not what it's made out to be. However I do mind how Amazon is behaving against society and their employees. There is no way I'm buying anything from there.

Just one (old) example:

Kindle is also Amazon sadly :-)

That book looks great, is there any way of buying it that isn't on Amazon? Prefferably as an ebook.

I guess you mean this? Grats :-)
There is a profiler function in the menu that lists time in all functions so you can find your bottlenecks.

and ->Output after running the game/program.

You can use Cloudflare to get a free one and still use http to your webserver without changing anything except the DNS records.
I updated the news-field in the top right corner of the forum. It's manually updated when someone remembers :-)

If you have installed version 15 you can easilly update from the menu anyway, it always gets whatever is latest in the same version branch so when 16 comes around you have to redownload.
I do not see an end for Basic the language. Sure, python and other things are cool right now but they will dwindle with time. They will get more and more complicated to do something simple, using more resources. Sooner or later we are at the end of what the cpu can handle or we suddenly get something new and cool that has a much smaller CPU and memory (Remember the first iPhone? :-)

Basic will come back, people are already looking for easier ways and what can be easier than Basic? The drag 'n' drop programming mentality of today has it's limits still. If you can make whatever game in a drag 'n' drop environment you will have such a mastodont project that it would be easier to just throw something together in Basic.

I'm happy to see that we're not giving up on GLBasic, it represents a lot of work and optimisations!
If you haven't set the headers at all, they can change because of webserver updates changing the default compression/encoding.
Discord seems to have some way to integrate games with game lobby functionality now. Mabe worth a look for multiplayer games too?

QuoteRich Presence allows you to leverage the totally overhauled "Now Playing" section in a Discord user's profile to help people play your game together. Rich game data—including duration, score, current boss or map, and so much more—lives inside Discord. You can spectate a friend's game directly from their profile popout, or party up via beautiful chat embeds with real-time information about open party slots and the party's in-game status. No more exchanging usernames and friend codes, or wondering if there's room for you to join. Rich Presence is a living invitation to play together, or to watch your friends kick butt.
Every time I come back just to do something simple in GLBasic I get hit on the head by an array or something else simple... :-)
